IDEA: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility

For over 25 years SAAF has supported and advocated for the health and wellbeing of those living with HIV, LGBTQ+ individuals, and communities marginalized by society. We know that a healthy, equitable, and stigma-free community starts internally; it starts with us.

The SAAF IDEA committee is dedicated to celebrating the ways SAAF culture empowers authenticity and will foster an atmosphere that is committed to inclusivity and learning. We invite you to join us on that mission.
